Actress turned writer, Twinkle Khanna has a satirical take on the happenings around in the world. She writes as a guest columnist on Sunday for Times of India and gives her piece of mind on daily humdrum to the matters of national importance.
Recently Supreme Court of India passed a ruling making it mandatory for all the cinema halls across India to play the national anthem before the film begins and also made it mandatory for the audience to stand in honour of the national anthem.
In her article, Twinkle Khanna quirkily said that she was one of those women who would get extremely emotional during the national anthem. Twinkle Khanna even recalled her visit to the Wagah border where she had the experience of screaming her lungs out with the slogans like ‘Jai Hind’ and ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’.
But in explaining that patriotism is not about standing up in the cinema halls while national anthem, she drew a very comic analogy. She wrote, “But I still can’t wrap my head around how and why I am obliged to feel patriotic when I have merely booked tickets for ‘Befikre’, and am about to see Ranveer Singh in his tight red underwear.”
What do you think about her opinion? Do you agree?
